Another post?

Well, I've just come back from our last parenting session, and felt like I had to off load.

It was scary this week. Last week was icky (what with the pop-your-waters-hook and suck-your-baby-out-hoover-attachment and all) but this was actually frightening. Very useful - essential actually - but I freaked me out. This is something I have avoided reading up on in the books we are given.

We did baby first aid.

Not on real babies I hasten to add, on dolls. And it is stuff that we NEED to know, like how to resus' a baby, and how to stop it choking. It's just that I was happy in my state of pure ignorant bliss that my baby would never need to have any first aid. My baby will be perfectly fine and fit and well and live forever, without me having to slap it on the back, or breath for it once it's out side the womb.

Stupid, I know.

So now I am going to read up on it in the books too, and feel confident that I will know what to do in an emergency, and not have nightmares tonight.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
